Near-Earth Asteroids, The Impact Hazard, and Space Missions

Near-Earth Asteroids, The Impact Hazard, and Space Missions

About

Near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) are small solar system bodies in orbits that come near or cross the orbit of Earth. Dr. Michael Busch will review NEAs as unique physical worlds, as potential impact hazards to Earth, and as accessible destinations for spacecraft. 

Michael W. Busch, PhD, is a planetary astronomer and research scientist at the SETI Institute.  His research focuses primarily on studying individual asteroids with radar and radio technique; to understand their histories, rule out future Earth impacts, and support space missions.
